Change or Reset Your Password

There are two ways to change or reset your JHED password.

  1. If you have successfully logged in to JHED, click on the MyProfile icon under the MyProfile category on the left. Password Management options are listed on the right side of your profile page. You will be required to enter in your old password, the new password, and then re-type the new password to verify it. Your password must be at least eight characters long and must contain at least two numeric characters and two alphabetic characters.
  2. If you cannot log in to JHED, you can also reset your password by clicking on CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD in the upper left corner of the initial screen. You will then be taken to the secret answer/question area, which will allow you to reset your password.

Please keep in mind that JHED passwords expire every 180 days. When your password expires, you will be prompted to change it upon logging in to JHED.

Edit Your JHED Information

To update your JHED information, log in to and click on the MyProfile icon under the MyProfile category on the left.

To the right of your profile information, you will see links to change your online visibility settings and change your password, among other options. You can also edit your profile information from this screen. Make sure you click “Save myProfile” at the bottom when you are done.

If you need to request to change any data that you cannot edit (because the system is not allowing you to do it), and you are a student, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 410-516-8083. If you are a faculty member, please call 410-516-2257.

Online Visibility

JHED represents your data in two ways: Hopkins View and World View. The Hopkins View represents how your data will look to users searching your record from within Johns Hopkins University networks. The World View represents how your data will be presented to the internet in general. It is important to note that all searches conducted while logged in to JHED will yield the Hopkins View, regardless of your network location.

For each field in your profile, you have the option of selecting No One, World, Hopkins, or My Contacts. When your record is returned as the result of a search within JHED, only visible fields with data will be displayed. Empty fields are not displayed.

Once you have completed selecting fields for display, please be sure to click Save myProfile. This will save your changes.

If you want to completely suppress yourself from view (and you are eligible to do so), select No One from the Full Name display row on your profile. Doing so will completely suppress your entry from searches. This choice has security and privacy advantages, but be aware that Hopkins affiliates with legitimate reasons to contact you will not be able to do so. It is your responsibility to make sure that each individual who may need to contact you has correct contact information.
